SHOT Show 2017: KRISS USA Introduces DEFIANCE DMK22 Sporting Rifles

DEFIANCE DMK22 rifles offer impressive quality and levels of customisability

KRISS USA, an innovative designer, manufacturer and distributor of small arms, introduces the new DEFIANCE DMK22 series of .22LR AR-15 sporting rifles with the DMK22C model in various CERAKOTE colour finishes, and the DMK22C-LVOA with exclusive licensing from War Sport Manufacturing. The DMK22 Sporting Rifles are on display for the first time at the KRISS USA booth, #8003, during the show.

The DEFIANCE DMK22 is a trailblazing rifle that sets a new standard for performance, build quality, and upgradability for the .22LR sporting rifle segment.” Tim Seargeant, KRISS USA’s Marketing Manager, stated. “The DMK22 is a no-compromises rifle, it offers the same feel, functionality, and
upgradability as a centrefire AR-15, but at rimfire cost of ownership.”

The DMK22C features a 16.5in 4140 Chrome Moly barrel with a 1:16in twist rate, ½” x 28 RH threading, and black nitiride coating. The 13″ free floating hand guard is made from aircraft grade aluminium, with a MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny top rail and modular rail section attachment points at the three, six, and nine o’clock positions. The proprietary sporting rifle receivers are forged from an aluminium alloy and are designed to be compatible with AR-15 upgrade parts; such as MILSPEC butt stocks, pistol grips, dust covers, charging handles, forward assists, magazine releases, muzzle devices, and hand guards. The bolt catch functions with the included DEFIANCE .22LR magazine to lock the bolt back when empty, even when the magazine is removed.

Further customisation can be achieved with different barrel profiles, through a patent pending barrel adaptor system. The DMK22C is also compatible with most Ruger 10/22 aftermarket barrels. Additionally, select .22LR AR-15 magazines also fit and feed in the DEFIANCE DMK22C, though they do not trigger the bolt catch. The DMK22C is also compatible with a select number of AR-15 aftermarket trigger packs.
